Las Vegas DECA Picnic

Are you looking for more activities for your DECA chapter to be involved in for the year of 2012-2013? Look no further and make sure to mark your calendars for this year's Las Vegas DECA picnic! The picnic will take place on October 13th between 11am-3pm at Paradise Park and is being organized by Southwest CTA.

For the past three years, Southwest CTA (SWCTA) DECA has coordinated the fun-filled and memorable picnic for all DECA chapters within the Las Vegas area. Each year members participate and are ready to show their DECA spirit for each of their chapters. There is always an abundant amount of food, loads of games to compete in, and plenty of new people to meet.

The SWCTA DECA Officer Team plans diverse, thrilling games for chapters to compete in. Such activities include the infamous pie-eating contest, water balloon toss, relay races, and even water gun fights and scavenger hunts! "I'm excited for all of the games we'll be having at the picnic. I'm currently looking for a partner so I can be the water balloon toss champion this year!", states Gabrielle Silveroli, SWCTA DECA Chapter Vice President of Membership.

The Las Vegas DECA picnic is a pot-luck event. This means that each chapter in attendance brings along their own food to share with the group. You may bring drinks, snacks, chips, entrees, and even desserts; the list is endless! This year, SWCTA DECA is planning on providing burgers and hotdogs for entrees, so make sure to bring something unique to the event.

If you're looking for a perfect time to network with other members of Nevada DECA before this year's Western Region Leadership Conference (WRLC) in Seattle, Washington or the State Career and Development Conference (SCDC), now is that time. Get to know numerous members from over 15 chapters located within the Las Vegas area! This is a great time to make some new friends and create great memories.

If this sounds like a fun time, talk with your chapter and see if you can attend! It will take place on October 13th at Paradise Park, on McLeod Drive and East Tropicana. The picnic begins at 11am and ends at 3pm. Registration will be opening soon and more information will be sent out via e-mail. If you have any immediate questions regarding this year's picnic, please contact the SWCTA DECA Advisor, Mr. Perry Annett at [email protected] or message the Officer Team on SWCTA DECA's Facebook Page.

"We're all excited about planning this year's annual Las Vegas DECA picnic. Just as we did last year, we will have many fun-filled activities such as a potluck, water balloons, and pie-eating contests. It's a great opportunity to network with your fellow DECA members! We'll see you there!” says Vivian Sam, SWCTA DECA Chapter President.
